ABSTRACT

In the early days of computer software development programmers used a two digit- representation for the year in a date to save memory (i.e. 61 instead of 1961). This will create, and in some cases is already creating, serious problems as the computer sees the year 2000 as 1900. In this paper we will further clarify the problem and survey some existing methods of finding and testing for accuracy of possible solutions We will evaluate these techniques and some existing software products that deal with this problem We will give a real life example of how the problem has been solved at an institution of higher learning.
